The Undisputed Era was once one of the centerpieces of Triple H’s NXT. Adam Cole, Bobby Fish, Kylo O’Reilly, and Rodrick Strong made it their mission to rack up championships on the black and gold brand by doing anything possible to win. Although the group is no longer in WWE, the leader of the once dominated faction spoke about the original pitch for it.

In the latest edition of “The Kurt Angle Show,” Cole revealed that an injury to Fish led to Strong being included in the group. He also mentioned that while WWE pitched other members, ultimately, the group decided that just the four of them was enough.

The three of us were kinda off to ourselves, and we said to ourselves, ‘I know we said we don’t want anyone else in the group, but Roderick Strong would be perfect.’ We’re all buddies with him.

Adding one or two more people to the group was discussed at one point, and I know the four of us were kind of like, ‘Eh,’ We felt like Roderick was the exception to the rule.


Despite departing WWE, Cole managed to somewhat reform the Undisputed Era in AEW with the creation of the Undisputed Elite. Cole, Fish, and O’Reilly have already planted their flag in the company. However, Strong has remained in NXT as part of Diamond Mine.
